Senior Citizen Needs Assessment and Gap Analysis Final Presentation to Mayor and Council April 18, 2016

City Kicks Off Study of Senior Needs

Findings of a new study will help determine if programs and services provided by the city and other government, private and nonprofit partners are expected to meet the needs of Rockville seniors.
The Senior Needs Assessment and Gap Analysis Study, which the Mayor and Council named as a priority in the Fiscal Year 2016 budget, is expected to be complete in March 2016. 

Rockville’s senior population is growing and changing rapidly and is expected to increase faster than any other age group in Rockville. The city and other services providers face the challenge of maintaining existing services and developing and funding new programs and services to address the needs of a demographically diverse population.

The addition to the Rockville Senior Center (pictured) has helped the city serve the changing needs of seniors, and the current study is examining what more could be done. 

The study will be composed of several parts including:
A review of the 2006 Senior Services Long Range Plan.
A full inventory of existing services provided to seniors by Rockville Senior  Services, as well as other city, county and        state, government agencies; nongovernmental agencies; nonprofits and faith-based organizations.
In-depth stakeholder interviews.
Focus groups.
A needs assessment survey 
A review of local and national trends and best practices for senior provisions.
An evaluation report and final report.
